The login URL for SAM V1 is https://www.quickbase.com/db/main?a=signin. It is suggested that users bookmark this URL in their browser.
Login and Password
Access to SAM V1 requires a login and password. Disability Service Providers at an institution are provided with their own login and password. Typically a user’s login is their email address.
Multiple logins with the same login are allowed.
Passwords are case sensitive.
Users and Roles
SAM V1 users are assigned roles and roles determine what permissions are granted within SAM V1.
The following roles are defined in SAM V1:
SAM V1 is comprised of the following tables:
For each table, records can be added, edited, deleted, or viewed, depending on the user’s role. To view table descriptions, relationships, process flows, and detailed field information, click on a table name listed above.
- My Quickbase
- Adding or Editing a Record
- Viewing Records
- Finding Records
- Emailing a Record

The SAM V1 customer application is created by copying either the SAM con NEON or SAM sin NEON master application. SAM con NEON is used as the source when the customer will also be an AMAC member and have students in NEON. SAM sin NEON is used as the source when the customer will not have related students in NEON.
Prior to creating the SAM V1 application for the customer, the customer should complete the SAM V1 implementation guide. This Excel spreadsheet helps the customer identify:
- How many users will have access
- The name and email address of all users (this information will be used to create the QuickBase logins for users)
- If any new roles and permissions are required in addition to the service provider and administrator roles
- What role to assign to each user
- The multiple-choice field values
- The list of available accommodations
Completed spreadsheets and questions can be emailed to Joe Davis firstname.lastname@example.org.
When the SAM V1 customer application is created, AMAC will use the information provided in the implementation guide to provision users, create any new roles and permissions, and customize the values for multiple-choice fields.
